On this Labor Day, we hope you’re not experiencing the conflict one of our print authors recently experienced. It is described in a blog by the editor of that CSR theme issue on play:
It was Labor Day, he said, a day the United States uses to honor American workers by giving them free time—an invitation to play. The author was hunkered down in his office working on a paper extolling the value of play when he should have been at play because it was a day set aside for play as a means of honoring work. How conflicted he felt!
Perhaps instead, you can relax and enjoy some of our recent articles in the recent theme issue on play.

What's New in CSR?
In the recent issue of CSR, you will find a new “Advice to…” column from Mike Hulme, a professor of geography at the University of Cambridge. Although addressed to a specific set of professors in geography, the essay really should be read by any Christian scientist, or any Christian professor for that matter. It is an excellent example of how Christ and the Christian story can animate learning in a particular discipline, and some of those forms can be easily transferred to other disciplines.
What's New in Faith-Learning?
The Center for Christianity in Business at Houston Baptist University is hosting a series this year entitled, “Biblical Worldview and the Marketplace Webinars.” This month on September 16th at 11am-12pm CT , Dr. Michael Cafferky, author of Business Ethics in Biblical Perspective, will be sharing. We encourage you to check out this free resource as well as the Center’s other work.
CSR's Upcoming 50th Anniversary Celebration
Registration is now open for Baylor’s Institute for Faith and Learning upcoming conference, Living Accountably, from Oct. 27-29. At this conference Christian Scholar’s Review will be hosting our 50th Anniversary Celebration. We invite you to join is.
Reflection from the Editor-in-Chief
At the start of the semester with a new class, I usually like to remind my students that I did not know what it means to be an excellent Christian student my first two years of college (even though I knew how to get As in high school). Fortunately, I had some mentors help me with that process. If you want to hear my podcast about this journey with Stan Wallace from Global Scholars, an organization that “helps equip professors to have a redemptive influence worldwide,” you can find it hear: I hope you find it helpful. I would also encourage you to check out the resources that Global Scholars provides.
